Just a couple of weeks ago i was thinking he was very close to being able to compete at the level he is now as a guy that positively impacts the result noticeably. Last night he had a ton of possessions where he did everything right but just came up short, not quite getting the bounce or not quite securing a rebound or not getting the call on defense. Without a doubt he still had a great impact, but now he looks really close to just having monster games that would make his teammates better. This is getting really fun.
I agree about JV, very happy with his progress lately. He's making a real impact at both ends and his stats are no longer empty numbers, he fought chandler and noah man to man and you can make a point he came on top every time.

very interested to see how he fares against hibbert, because traditionally he really struggled against his size.
